searched. i actually made it to the tarmac without ever showing my boarding pass. it was comical. airports around egypt are famous for loose security. cairo included. now, just two days ago, about five days after the crash, security was comically over the top. they sent my bag through five times, they patted me down four times when i didn't even set off a metal detector. they're clearly trying to make a huge show for international media, that they've beefed up that security. >> that's so troubling. what can you tell us? what's the next step for investigators, given this new information? >> reporter: given this new information, reena, investigators, that investigation team which is based in cairo, is poring over that cctv camera footage, looking for any clues. but the egyptian investigation committee is begging the international community and western governments to share that information, to share any intelligence. right now they feel like they
